Kilrathi Saga's Wing Commander 3 Music Preserved Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

When the Kilrathi Saga bundle was released, it was met with a mixed reception. While it provided an accessible method for playing the classic trilogy on faster Windows 95 computers, it also contained a few technical glitches and oddities. One notable change is that the Wing Commander III port had its MIDI soundtrack swapped out for WAV audio recordings of the same, and not particularly high quality ones at that. Today, playing the originals through DOSBox provides a much better overall gameplay experience on modern hardware. But just as the Kilrathi Saga remains a must-buy item for collectors, we do want to preserve the KS WC3 music for posterity. Forums member Darkmage kindly exported the raw WAV music from the game's data files, and Whistler converted them to MP3 format for your convenience. You can listen to a sample track below and download the entire package here (9.1MB). It's a far cry from the MIDI originals on a good soundcard, not to mention George Oldziey's recent orchestral and jazz live recordings!
